Employment at Azalea Mountain School

Asheville, North Carolina, “#1 Best Small City,” is vibrant with a welcoming creative spirit. Located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, it is known for its thriving artistic community, progressive mindset, and historically rich renaissance downtown with its booming food and music scene. Surrounded by spectacular natural beauty, there are abundant opportunities for outdoor activities from mountain hiking and biking to white water rafting and canoeing — in temperate weather, yet with all four seasons! Azalea Mountain School is enjoying its sixth school year with an enrollment of 114 children and is growing rapidly.

We offer parent-child classes, Nursery, Kindergarten, and First through Fifth Grades, and have a cohesive Faculty supported by a School Administrator, Faculty Coordinator, and active Board. Located currently in a rented school building with its own large field, pavilion and children’s gardens on the property, we are at the exciting stage of planning for the future and the space(s) to meet our growth. As an integral part of our program, the Grades classes spend every other Friday on nature immersion field trips. Our community includes biodynamic farms, a Steiner study group, eurythmy, festival celebrations, various Waldorf- based Early Childhood programs, and Waldorf-based homeschooling families.

First Grade Teacher

Azalea Mountain School is currently seeking qualified applicants for our 2018-2019 First Grade class.

Azalea Mountain School is thriving in its seventh school year. We have a cohesive faculty and our Board has a healthy awareness of anthroposophy. We have a school administrator, a faculty coordinator and an enrollment coordinator as our administration. Despite our youth, the school was

becoming an associate member in the spring of 2018. If you’re drawn to a vibrant pioneering school on the cusp of exciting new growth, Azalea Mountain School may be calling you!

For the upcoming school year, Azalea Mountain will offer multiple parent-child classes, 3 nursery classes, 2 kindergartens, and grades first through fifth/sixth; our class sizes are healthy.
